Mexican corn salad, or esquites, is a side dish that’s popular on the streets of Mexico. It’s incredibly delicious and easy, making it a perfect dish for a picnic or a potluck. Traditionally, this dish uses mayonnaise, but Greek yogurt serves as a fantastic, healthier substitute. Cotija cheese is a crumbly Mexican cheese that’s similar to feta. You can find it at most big-chain grocery stores. Feta or parmesan will work, too. You can also grill a whole ear of corn (about 8 to 10 minutes until slightly charred on all sides) then cut the kernels off into a bowl. Or if you can’t wait, save yourself a dish to wash and eat it straight off the cob!
